- The open beta runs from now through November 25 on Xbox One
- West of Dead is a twin-stick cover shooter that takes place in Purgatory
- It stars Ron Perlman, which is all you really need to know
We were at X019 last week admiring all the wicked titles on display, but also feeling pretty ecstatic that people were playing our game, West of Dead, too. We’re even more excited to share that anyone can play it now, as we’ve got the West of Dead open beta running through November 25 on Xbox One.
You are plunged into an inferno of gun smoke and darkness in the twin-stick cover shooter West of Dead. The game takes place in Purgatory, a place of sin and damnation, wendigos and witches. The Wild West has never been this dark.
Ron Perlman (yes, the Ron Perlman!) stars as the voice of the main protagonist William Mason, a dead man awakened with only the memory of a figure in black. His existence sets into motion a chain of events that have truly mythic consequences. No one said dying would be easy.
Thrown into the unknown procedurally generated hunting grounds of Purgatory, your skills will be put to the test as you shoot and dodge your way through the grime and grit of the underworld. Find out if you have what it takes to get through Purgatory with your soul intact.
We feel that West of Dead is finally ready to be dragged out from the shadows and put into your hands. We are very excited to let you get ahold of the game, and we can’t wait to see what you can show us.
That’s why we hope you will join us in the beta! As cheesy as it sounds, your feedback will make this the game you want it to be. The West of Dead Open Beta is live from now through November 25 and can be downloaded from the Microsoft Store via your console or right here.
The battle for your soul will take place on Xbox One and will be available with Xbox Game Pass when West of Dead launches in 2020.
Are you ready to raise hell?
